I have been using them...
, August 23, 2012
I have been using them for a few days now on a variety of papers (Moleskine and
regular paper). So far I love them. I've used a wide variety of technical pens
in the past from Rapidograph and Staedtler to Copic, Sakura and Faber Castell.
All of the traditional tech pens tend to clog up. The fiber tip markers like the
Copic and Sakura tend to push back up into the metal ferrule. Probably because I
push too hard but that's the way I draw. I also travel a lot so the pens have to
stand up to changing air pressure without leaking. I also ink on top of pencil
sketches so I need a pen that won't clog or skip. So far the Ohto line work
great. The line is very smooth and even and black. It dries fast and holds up
under erasure better than the others even when I have inked over pencil. They
don't leak on flights so far. And of course there is no fiber tip to mush down
or retract within the metal ferrule. I highly recommend them for sketching.

I first want to start...
, December 5, 2012
I first want to start off this review by saying that I have only had these for
about a few days, but so far, I love them. These pens are compatible with the
Copic Multiliners and Sakura Microns. The great thing about these is whenever
you cap them or hit the writing tip, it'll stay just fine! Unlike other felt tip
pens (Staedler, Microns, Copics) you don't ever have to worry about accidentally
crushing your pen. They produce the same line + color of the other pens. If
there is any complaint about these, it's the fact that these tend to bleed A
LOT. If you are drawing in little details, you have to be careful because these
will bleed. Definitely a great buy!

Well, i have been all...
, May 8, 2013
Well, i have been all up and down Felt/Porous Pen St. It can be a lonely journey
trying to find the right tool for the job.
I am admittedly, a Heavy-Handed scribbler. Being a software developer/designer,
a lot of my penmanship is employed in a rush of creativity or logistical
"eureka-ness". Traditional felt/porous pen tips crumble under my club-like
employment after a few days.
To make my pen requirements more unreasonable, I am also a compulsive doodler. I
love the flow and line depth that graphic art felt/porous pens give, so much so
that i was quite comfortable purchasing a package of Staedtler pens every 2
weeks to support my habit. Now i don't have to. These pens are ball point and i
actually forget they are. I have had them for 2 weeks and there is no signs of
wear. Awesome stuff! I just gifted them to a good friend who is a fashion
LOL. I just read my review and thought it sounded like a commercial, but there
truly is value here. My fellow "High Pressure Penographers" if you have the same
faults as me, these are your pens.

These are wonderful pens....
, January 26, 2013
These are wonderful pens. I tried them on some cheap notebook paper and didn't
experience any feathering or skipping with any size pen point. They are also
surprisingly smooth and more pleasant to write with than some pilot roller ball
pens I've used in the past. They are wonderful for sketching, technical
drawings, and even taking notes in some of my classes.

Okay so I love this set!...
, September 8, 2012
Okay so I love this set! The ink is super excellent, holds up well against
erasing and copics! I thought it'd be a tiny little felt tip in a metal casing,
but that was just my fault for not reading all the way! ^u^; Anyways it's an
excellent buy! If my set ever runs out I'll definitely purchase again!
